The New York Times described her as “the Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” but you can come up with your own comparison when you see Celtic fiddler Eileen Ivers in Bath. She’s been rooted in Irish traditional music since she was 8 years old and has won nine all-Ireland fiddle championships. She’s also won a Grammy and has been a soloist with more than 50 symphony orchestras, including the Boston Pops and London Symphony Orchestra. Ivers’ latest release is 2020’s “Scatter the Light.”
